In ShoppingGirl’s first post on great Summer skirt options, we looked at the pretty and useful maxi-length crinkle skirt style. It’s great for a Summer ShoppingGirl who is on the go, as it can be carried in her tote easily for quick-change convenience to meet all of her Summertime

activity needs.

But crinkled skirts aren’t the only great maxi-length option for Summer. Also, crinkled skirts lean toward a more casual, relaxed vibe, and may not be quite right for a variety of Summertime events.

Just because it’s Summer doesn’t mean you don’t have to dress up. There are weddings, office functions, music festivals, date nights, and other events to consider. And let’s not forget cruises!

Maxi skirts can be the perfect solution to your more formal Summer apparel needs. The loose, flowing design tends to be cool, and the non-restrictive fit is appealing, especially if you got too much Sun during the day. A maxi-length hemline offers instant formality and is easy to finish off with a simple top and a few accessories to achieve a glamorous yet comfortable look for your Summer nights.

One of the shops we are featuring in this post is US.Asos.com. Why does ShoppingGirl like this online retailer for maxi skirts? We were pleased to see the range offered in a variety of current styles, fabrics, and colors. But we were even more pleased to find that Asos offers these skirts in sizes and styles that suit all ShoppingGirls, whether regular, petite, tall, plus, or pregnant. We also liked the inclusion of videos for each item, so you can view the proportion, drape, flow and movement of the skirts on a model who fits the size description. Finally, we liked the reasonable pricing on these skirts at Asos.

You can remain covered up without squelching your womanly charms on a date with your husband or when attending an event where you want to be dazzling without seeming to try too hard.
